because i'm sure you've heard stories o like ms. ward. college educated, 500, 1,000, 1500 job applications. what is going on in the economy? >> i think its more serious than the economy. employers own the long-term unemployment, and the what has d is the employment infrastructure, the methods, the tools that employers use to recruit and hire people. where in the past if you want to find a job you had to be able to walk into a job interview, demonstrate to an interhands down that you could do the work. if it was management, mechanical, weather. you had to demonstrate that you can do it profitbly for the employer. what has changed dramatically not what needs to be done to recruit and hire. what has changed is that employers are working on a dum dumbed-down system of databases and key words. rather than having intelligent discussion that allows the person to show you how they're going profit their business, employers are matching key words in the date abou database to ken resumÉs. they. >> peter, this up ends everything that we hear about how labor markets work. you need people to do tasks i
